How can your clients obtain the best health and long-term care? How can they protect their assets and income against the ruinous costs of care? Most are unaware of the realities of Medicaid eligibility and the benefits that come with this important benefits program, particularly in New York.

  • The difference between Medicare and Medicaid
  • Eligibility and planning for Community Medicaid

  • Eligibility and planning for Nursing Home Medicaid
    •  Including the five-year “look back” and penalty periods
  • Medicaid Asset Protection Trusts
  • Pooled Income Trusts

  • Understand how clients can protect themselves and their assets if they need long-term care
